• For Inlet, be sure to supply power from the outlet of the
same voltage.
• For PLUGGABLE EQUIPMENT, the socket-outlet shall
be installed near the equipment and shall be easily
accessible.
• Unplug the cord from the wall outlet and remove dust
from the power plug periodically, at least once a year.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shocks.
• Do not use the machine unless it is connected to a
power supply that satisfies the displayed voltage
condition.
• Check the voltage of the wall outlet and the capacity of
the circuit breaker before you plug the power cords.
Plug each power cord to different outlet that has
independent circuit breaker. If you plug more than one
power cord to wall outlets that share the same circuit
breaker, the power may be cut off by the breaker.
Handling of ink
• Keep ink away from an open flame. Also keep the
room well ventilated when you use or handle ink.
• If you get ink in your eyes, immediately wash your
eyes with a lot of clean water for at least 15 minutes. In
doing so, also wash eyes to rinse ink away completely.
Then, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
• If anyone drinks ink by mistake, keep him or her quiet
and see a doctor immediately. Do not allow him or her
to swallow the vomit.
Then contact the emergency number written in SDS.
• If you inhale a lot of vapor and feel bad, immediately
move to a location of fresh air and keep yourself warm
and quiet. Then, consult a doctor as soon as possible.
• Store ink cartridges in a place that is out of the reach of
children.
• If the ink adheres to your skin, use a large amount of
water and soap or special detergent for skin to remove
the ink.
Power supply
• Leave the breaker turned ON.
• Do not turn off the main power switch on the right side
of this machine.
Heater
• Do not spill liquid on the Media Transfer Surface as
this may cause failure of the heater or firing.
• Do not touch Media Transfer Surface heaters with bare
hand while it is hot; otherwise, you can get burned.
Note on maintenance
• When cleaning the heads, make sure to wear the
attached goggles and gloves.
• The gloves supplied with the machine are disposable.

CAUTIONS and NOTES
Warning
Handling of ink cartridges
• The safety evaluation of this machine assumes that the ink
recommended by this company is used. For safe usage of this
machine, use the ink recommend by this company
• Never refill the ink pack and white ink cartridge with ink. Refilled
ink cartridge can cause a trouble. Remember that MIMAKI
assumes no responsibility for any damage caused by the use of
the ink cartridge replenished with ink.
• If the ink cartridge is moved from a cold place to a warm place,
leave it in the room temperature for three hours or more before
using it.
• Open the ink cartridge just before installing it in the machine. If it
is opened and left for an extended period of time, normal
printing performance of the machine may not be ensured.
• Make sure to store ink cartridges in a cool and dark place.
• Store ink cartridges and waste ink bottle in a place that is out of
the reach of children.
• Be sure to thoroughly consume the ink in the ink cartridge, once
it is opened, within three months. If an extended period of time
has passed away after opening the cartridge tank, printing
quality would be poor.
• Neither pound the cartridge nor shake it violently, as doing so
can cause leakage of ink.
• Do not touch or stain the contacts of the ink cartridge, as doing
so may cause damage to the print circuit board.
• Consult your sales or service representative for proper disposal
of ink cartridge, ink pack, and waste ink.
When you dispose them by yourself, follow the regulations
stipulated by the industrial waste disposer or the country or
region you live in.
• Make sure that you shake the white and silver ink cartridges
before printing.
Notes on maintenance
• It is strongly recommended to use the machine in a room that is
not dusty.
• Keep the front cover closed even when the machine is not
printing. If not, dust can accumulate on the nozzles in the
heads.
• Dust in the heads can also cause drops of ink to fall suddenly
down on the media during printing. In such a case, be sure to
clean up the heads. (
P.5-10)
• When cleaning the ink-station or the heads, make sure to wear
the attached gloves. Further, when the solvent ink is used, it is
necessary to wear the attached goggles.
Safety Precautions
Warning
Cautions on Installation

Chapter 1 Before Use
• Use genuine ink cartridges for this machine. This
machine functions by recognizing the genuine ink
cartridges. In case of troubles caused by modified
ink cartridges or the like, it shall be out of the
warranty even within the warranty period.
• If the ink cartridge is moved from a cold place to a
warm place, leave it in the room temperature for
three hours or more before using it.
• Be sure to thoroughly consume the ink in the ink
cartridge, once it is opened, within three months.
If an extended period of time has passed away
after opening the cartridge tank, printing quality
would be poor.
• Make sure to store ink cartridges in a cool and
dark place.
• Store ink cartridges and waste ink tank in a place
that is out of the reach of children.
• Request an industrial waste processor for
processing of empty ink cartridges.
• Do not shake ink cartridges violently. This may
result in ink leakage from the ink cartridges.
• Never refill the ink cartridges with ink. This may
result in troubles.
MIMAKI will not bear any responsibility for any

Caution in handling of medias
Pay attention to the followings for handling of medias.
• Use media recommended by MIMAKI to
ensure reliable, high-quality printing.
Set the heater temperature to meet the
characteristics of the media.
• Pay attention to the expansion and
contraction of the media.
Do not use media immediately after unpacking.
The media can be affected by the room
temperature and humidity, and thus it may
expand and contract.
The media have to be left in the atmosphere in
which they are to be used for 30 minutes or more
after unpacked.
• Do not use curled media.
This may result in paper jamming.
If a regular-sized coated sheet of media is rolled
and stored, the coated side has to face outside.
• Be careful to dusts on the edge face of the
media.
Some rolls have dusts contained in the package
gathered on the edge surface of the roll. If you
use as it is, the drawing quality may be degraded
due to nozzle missing or ink drops. Be sure to set
the roll after removing dusts adhering on the edge
face of the roll.

Adjusting the Position of the Pinch Roller According to the State of a Media
Adjust the position of the pinch roller according to the width of the media to be set.
This machine feeds the media with a pinch roller and grid roller for printing or cutting.
The pinch roller should be above the grid roller.
• When setting the media. Do not place the pinch roller that has been removed from the media on the grid roller. (Move the
pinch roller as shown in the illustration “X” in “How to Adjust the Pinch Roller”.) Operating the printer with the media not
gripped between the pinch roller and grid roller could wear the pinch roller out.

Chapter 2 Basic Operation
Installing Tools
This machine allows you to use the following tools:
Cutter :
This tool is selected when an image printed on a media
is cut or when letters are cut with a cutting media.
Pen (water-based ballpoint pen) :
This tool is used to perform “test printing” for checking
how images or letters are cut actually.
Adjusting the protrusion of the cutter
blade
Adjust the cutter blade according to the types of the cutters and
the sheet for use.
After adjusting the protrusion of the cutter blade, set the cutting
conditions and conduct test cutting to check the cutting quality.
For the cutter supplied with unit, the protruding amount of the
blade can be adjusted with the cuttermounted in the pen
carriage.
• Take care not to protrude the blade too much. If
the cutter is used with its blade excessively
protruded, the cutter can cut out the base paper,
thus damaging the main unit.
When a Cutter Is Used
• Do not touch the cutter with your fingers.
The sharp blade edge of the cutter may cause you
to get injured.
• Do not shake the tool after having set the
cutter.
Otherwise, the blade edge may pop out, causing
you to get injured.
• Store the cutter blade in a place that is out of the
reach of children. In addition, dispose of used
cutter blades according to regional laws and
regulations.

For reference :
the protruding amount of the cutter blade = 0.2 to 0.5mm
(Replace the blade when it is blunt.)
• Adjust the blade pressure so that the cutter may
leave a little bit of cutter track on the sheet.
• In case the sheet thickness is thinner than the film
thickness, which may not provide correct cutting
quality, change the protruding amount of the blade
and you may get a better result.

• Use the TP4 when performing trapezium
compensation to correct the uneven sheet feeding
rate caused by the difference in the diameter
between the right and left grit rollers. If the
trapezium compensation is to be omitted, there is
no need to set the TP4. In that case, however,

Add registration marks on the
image that you want to make a
seal and others, and print it on
a sheet.
There are some
conditions for creating
the registration marks.
See pages P.4-2
through P.4-5.
Set the printed sheet in
CJV150 series.
Set it referring to
P.2-4.
Send the cut-target image from
the computer for cutting.
In case it is not
successfully cut,
• Confirm the reaction
of registration mark
sensor.
• Confirm the position
of the Light Pointer.
There are some limitations on preparing data with
registration marks.
In order to make full use of this function, read the following
instructions carefully and prepare data with registration
marks properly.
• The registration mark described here is intended
to detect the sheet inclination and the lengths
along the X and Y axes. It is not a mark for
trimming.
Size of the registration marks
The registration mark length shall be about more than ten
times the line width.
In addition, for the length of a side of the registration mark
against the data, refer to “The size of, and the distance
between, registration marks” (
P.4-4).

• The TP1 starting position must be 20 mm or more away from
the leading edge of the sheet.
• The TP2 end position must be 45 mm or more away from the
tail end of the sheet.

No-plotting area around the
registration marks
An area around a registration mark (from the mark origin
to the mark size area) is a non-plotting area. There must
be no data plotted or stain in this area; otherwise, a wrong
origin may be detected or a mark read error can occur.
• If a wrong mark origin is detected, the cutting will
be performed in a wrong area.

When perform printing a registration mark continuously,
set the one side of the registration marksize to 8mm. In
case 8mm or shorter registration mark recognized
continuously, may cause the glitches on the main unit.
Mark blurred
If the mark is blurred, a wrong mark origin can be
detected, thus resulting in deviated cutting.

Notes for the combined operation of
print & cut
Color of mark
The mark must be printed in black against the white
background.
The registration mark will not be detected correctly if the
background is not white or the mark is not black.
When performing combined operation of print & cut with
RasterLink 6 or later, be careful to the following items:
(1) When performing combined operation of print &
cut with the attached application software to this
device (RasaterLink 6 Ver.3.0 or later / FineCut
8.4.1 or later), the following set contents will
follow the instruction of software side. Note that
the contents set in this device will be invalid.
• Register mark size
• Register mark shape
(2) The combined operation of print & cut without a
register mark is not performed under the
following conditions:
• Print & cut using the take-up device
• Other than the above conditions, there is a
possibility of the cutting line being misaligned
depending on the printing data size. Therefore, it
is also recommended to perform the operation
with the data which has register marks for
combined operation of print & cut.

About Cutter Blade Corrected
Pressure Offset
Some part of a media is left uncut because the pressure
applied when the cutter blade touches the media is weak.
When an optional eccentric blade is used, some part of a
media to be cut with the blade's angle being 120 degrees
or less may be left uncut.
This is because the corners are cut with a low pressure
(about 5 g) automatically applied so that the media does
not turn up. Some part of a media may be left uncut
because the blade edge does not rotate
smoothly in its moving direction with the cutting pressure
being low. In such a case, configure the setting for the
pressure to be increased when the corners are cut.

Chapter 5 Maintenance
Maintenance
Maintain the machine regularly or as necessary so that its
accuracy will be maintained and it can continue to be
used for a long time.
Cleaning the Exterior Surfaces
When the exterior surfaces of the machine are stained,
dampen a soft cloth with water or a neutral detergent
diluted with water, squeeze it, and wipe the surfaces with
the cloth.
Precautions for Maintenance
Pay attention to the following items when maintaining this
machine.
• When using cleaning solution for maintenance, be
sure to wear the supplied protective glasses.
• Never disassemble the machine.Disassembling it
can result in electric shock hazards or damage to
the machine.
Before maintenance, be sure to turn off the power
switch and unplug the power cable;otherwise, an
unexpected accident may occur.
• Prevent moisture from entering the
machine.Moisture inside the machine can cause
electric shock hazards or damage to the machine.
• To ensure stable ink jetting, it is necessary for the
machine to eject a small amount of ink (flushing)
regularly when a printing (outputting) operation
has not been performed for a long time.
• When the machine is not to be used for a long
time, turn off only the power switch on the front
side, leave the main power switch at the right side
turned ON (in the position of | ), and leave the
power cable connected.
Cleaning the Platen
The platen easily gets dirty with lint, paper dust, etc.
generated when a media is cut.
Wipe off conspicuous stains with a soft-hair brush, a dry
cloth, a paper towel, etc.
• Do not wipe the nozzle face of the heads, wiper,
caps, etc. with water or alcohol.Doing so can
cause nozzle clogging or machine failure.
• Do not use benzene, thinner, or any chemical
agent containing an abrasive.Such materials can
deteriorate or deform the surface of the cover.
• Do not apply a lubricant, etc. to any parts inside the
machine. Doing so can cause printing failure.
• Be careful that the cleaning solution, ink, etc. not
to stick to the cover because this may cause the
surface of the cover to deteriorate or deform.
• When the platen is stained with ink, wipe it off
with a paper towel containing a small amount of
cleaning solution for maintenance.
About Cleaning Solution
Use the cleaning liquid dedicated for the ink being used.
Type of Ink

• Before cleaning the platen, make sure that the
platen has cooled adequately.
• Because dust and dirt are easily accumulated in
the slots for holding a media and cutting paper
(cutter line), be sure to clean these parts carefully.
Chapter 5 Maintenance
Cleaning the Media Sensor
The media sensors are located on the platen in the
backside and the bottom surface of the head. When the
sensor is covered with dust, etc., it may cause false
detection of media.
Using a cotton swab, remove the dust, etc. accumulated
on the surface of the sensor.
Cleaning the Media Press
When the media press is covered with lint, dust, etc., a
media cannot be fed normally during printing or dust
sticks to the nozzles, which may result in abnormal
printing.
Clean the media press regularly.
When cleaning the sensor on the lower surface of the
head is cleaned, move the carriage to the left end by the
operations of step 1 of P.5-10 “Cleaning the Ink Head and
the Area around It”, and clean it.
